Whether you’re heading out for a day at the beach or enjoying a summer picnic outside, cool air in your cooler is essential for keeping your food fresh and tasting great throughout the day. However, while regular ice has traditionally been the go-to for most beach-goers and outdoor enthusiasts, dry ice is now emerging as a strong competition.
How Cool is Your Cooler?
While the contents of your cooler using regular ice may be a chilly 32 degrees Fahrenheit, dry ice keeps your perishable items even colder for longer at an icy -109 degrees Fahrenheit. This is especially perfect for all day outdoor adventures, long boat rides in the sun, or camping. By keeping your food chilly for a prolonged period of time, you’ll never need to waste food because of spoiled perishables again.
Keeping Ice Water Out of Your Food
Although regular ice may be great for giving your food a quick chill, it will eventually melt into water at the bottom of your cooler or container. This can make your well prepared food turn into a soggy mess before lunch time. Because dry ice evaporates over time, it keeps your food cold without the remaining ice water in your food.
Despite it’s convenience with keeping your food and drinks icy cold, dry ice requires special care for handling and transport. Unlike the low maintenance handling methods regular ice, dry ice requires the use of insulated gloves and/or tongs to prevent dangerous frostbite from damaging your skin. Since dry ice quickly becomes a gas, it is also important to keep some form of ventilation to avoid inhaling or exposure to high levels of carbon dioxide.
Perfect for Your Next Adventure
Dry ice is not only the coldest option, but also the most convenient for keeping your food and drinks cold on your next summer adventure. Before you hit the road, be sure to pack your cooler with dry ice to ensure that your food and drinks stay fresh throughout the day as you have fun.
